Born in New York City, Louise Glück grew up on Long Island. She published several books of poetry before winning the Pulitzer Prize for her book Wild Iris (1992). Vita Nova (1999) earned Glück the Bollingen Prize from Yale University.
Glück’s poetry often explores Greek and Roman mythology in a contemporary but spare language. Her lyricism and emotional directness has earned her a large following.
